2 killed in semi crash on Trans-Canada

RCMP are investigating after a semi and a vehicle collided on the Trans-Canada Highway just west of Portage la Prairie Wednesday afternoon.

Emergency crews rushed to the intersection of Highway 1 and Highway 16 around 2 p.m. to find a semi-trailer hauling hogs and a vehicle had collided.

The two people riding in the vehicle died in the crash, but the driver of the semi was uninjured.

RCMP remained on the scene later in the afternoon investigating and said more information would be released later in the investigation. It's not known if any hogs were killed or injured.
